This is a 7 or 8 man racing canoe (plus steersman) for stitch and tape plywood construction using mainly 12mm plywood. She can be made in boltable sections and therefore shortened/lengthened amidships to vary the number crewing her..
She has been designed to replace some of the solid wood boats used in Thailand and has a simple 2 chine hull section making her both stable and easy to build.
